Ah, but if you would go back in time, you wouldn't have that much shit going on anymore. So, how about you go back in time, and then drown yourself in a car in the garage?
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

BUMP!

I just had an idea if you posted in this topic 2 years ago look back at what you said and what would you say to that past self.
For me I'd have let myself know that I'd eventually start my mod all over again so I save time and restart it sooner. :p
That and get my past ass into a gym.

Well, let's see:

Think more, speak less more.


Yeah, I would've told my younger self to be more open about myself. Would've made me a lot happier and I would've/should've not been my anxious and hypocritical self that I am today. Apparently, I puzzle people.

Keeping your mouth shut is a fine way to get into social awkward situations, so I guess telling yourself "start saying whatever is on your mind if people are paying you attention, but try to make it funny" would have been a good one. Also "don't give a damn about what people might think, its those that don't think about that that succeeds"

We're neither pure nor wise nor good. We'll do the best we know. We'll build our house, and chop our wood, And make our garden grow.

I actually thought about it and what I would actually say is save some money and better plan my finances.

That's great advice to the younger members too.
Open a Bank account and put aside a little money every week like $10 and increase it over time the more you earn the more you stash.

So people would only break the laws of the universe for money, women and suicide? Well... I suppose the views and opinions of Revora Creative Network are not necessarily those of a functioning society of real people. I still believe you're all bots.

Vanity can work, vanity is after all pretty vital in keeping us from killing ourselves out of nihilism and apathy. The trick is to be dynamic and bend instead of breaking/"irrational defense mode" when you get attacked for an opinion or attitude you might have. Change the course before you go over the waterfall.

Having a bit of vanity and pride is good propulsion, without it you will become inert and never get anywhere... and you will barely have enough energy to do the things you want to do. Downward spiral and all that.

We're neither pure nor wise nor good. We'll do the best we know. We'll build our house, and chop our wood, And make our garden grow.

I'd tell myself to stop trying to fit in so much, I'm totally different from what I used to be like just a few years ago, and I would also tell myself to start learning guitar a bit earlier :p and to stay away from 1 person in particular...

I think I'd tell my younger self something along the lines of "Go on, you can take him. He's only one copper. His mates probably won't even notice."

Wouldn't matter either way. Younger me was an ignorant cunt who wouldn't listen.

Hostile is a cunt.

 

Thought I'd have that here to save time.

I would have told young Pasidon about the great deals one can find at Molt's Tractor Shop, which is now featuring tills for a new, low price. At Molt's, anyone can get high quality tractor supplies for reasonable prices.

2 years on once again, same as last time what would you say to 2 years ago you?

I'm sure some of us are old enough that we'd actually say the same thing as 2 years ago.

I know I would, I'd say to past me save up money still but also have a back up plan for when shit goes south.
